live up to the example as he set, as president obama indicated. what was great about mandela was his respect for the rule of law. think about it for just a moment. 27 years in jail on an ill legitimate situation, his advisor said no no no you can't do it, you can't appear on this case of rugby and discrimination, a libel set of some sort, it was that stubborn sense of fairness which kept the process on track. and we americans owe him and the country of south africa a great debt. because nothing would have torn this country apart in the 1970s or perhaps in the '80s but a race war in south africa. so all i want to do is celebrate this wonderful, wonderful man. >> i actually want to pick up ou had been appointed by an african american president, you had seen the current day legacy of nelson mandela in south africa. how did it resonate? >> it resonated incredibly --hie country. you know from people on the street to people in government. everyone aspires to live up to the legacy he left. it is a difficult challenge to live up to someone of his iconic nature. but he really inspired all

? >> i think president obama made a very, very moving oration to thinkent mandela, and i it is because there's all this parallel in history, the parallel between the apartheid struggle and the civil rights struggle, the fact that both of them were the first presidents, and to the fact that president obama got elevated into politics through the example of nelson mandela and the anti-apartheid struggle. how concerned are you about the future of south africa now mandela has gone and, given the reaction we got -- we saw president zuma got in the stadium today. >> in a strange way, i think all of that says south africa's future is good. this is south africa where people can feel free without fear of recriminations and be let into a stadium where their political sentiments in an election season -- i believe it to use that occasion drive an election campaign agenda. something in me actually felt that the democracy that nelson really has given us is working in south africa. >> thank you very much for coming in. >> thanks very much to you. >> and optimistic south african ambassador there. let's
